Realistic or not, here’s LINK’s market cap in BTC terms
The integration was expected to unlock new avenues of growth for Web3 developers looking to tap into the multichain ecosystem.
CCIP gains traction
Powered by Chainlink’s oracle networks, CCIP enables developers to securely transmit data and tokens between several blockchain networks.
Moreover, it provides a platform where developers can leverage the strengths of other chains and collaborate with developers from different chains to build robust cross-chain applications.
Protocols like CCIP attempted to plug a critical gap in the Web3 ecosystem-fragmentation—in which blockchains operate in isolation, with no interaction with other networks.
The protocol has found a lot of takers since its launch in July earlier in the year. With the latest launch on the BNB Chain, CCIP became operational on as many as seven networks, as per a Chainlink community member.
What’s the update on LINK?
The growing prominence of CCIP started to reflect on the native token LINK. As per CoinMarketCap, it was the best performing crypto asset over the last 30 days. The coin accumulated gains of nearly 35% in the said time period.
Notably, whale investors seemed to have provided the impetus to the price movement. As per popular on-chain sleuth Ali Martinez, wallets holding between 10,000 to 1 million coins added 7.5 million LINKs to their portfolios in the last two weeks.
At going market price, this was worth more than $60 million.

The buying binge indicated that there was optimism about the near-term outlook, and LINK’s price may continue to rise. However, this shouldn’t be taken as investment advice and readers were advised to DYOR.
Meanwhile, the Chainlink ecosystem was erupting with excitement as the highly anticipated SmartCon 2023 was about to begin. The event would span four days, the objective of which was to promote global Web3 adoption.
